the obama administration is calling an enrollment surge. they are pleased that 29,000 people signed up for obama care in the first 48 hours since their november 30 relaunch. you balance that against the fact that 5.6 million have had their insurance canceled. >> the administration likes to say that they're transparent. but what is 29,000 enrollees really mean? we don't know. >> but even if they were enrollees from start to finish, they're paid and all paid up, is that a good number? >> again, i would say we don't know, greta. we don't know. we've had testimony in congress on capitol hill saying that the back, the backup of this program is not working. the back end. >> is it finished? do you know if it's even finished? >> we don't know. in fact we're hearing now temporary payment plan to insurance companies. imagine this. we don't have income verification systems in place. because the president delayed that portion of the law. we don't have the ability to say to insurance companies, this person is eligible for a subsidy or not of the we're told now that the back end of the system doesn'
the obama administration is taking to make the college application process going a bit more smoothly. we have a link on our web site abc7 news.com under see it on tv. college has gotten so expensive. >> that is right. a study shows because a record number of college grads are deeper in debt. >> just keeps getting worse and worse. the picture for college grads is unfortunately bleak. a study finds 71% are leaving school with debt hanging over their heads up from 68% just five years ago. and the debt is higher than ever. it's now averaging $29,000. and the final blow, 18% of grads can't find jobs they're more likely to find a job than those did who did not go to college. >>> a warning to those who use google, facebook, yahoo, twitter. hackers stolen user names and pass words of 2 million users of those sites. most owners of the accounts have been notified, however, to be safe, experts say change your pass words often, also, make sure your antivirus software is updated >> you may see picket lines around fast food restaurants, workers planning strike as cross the country to protest low wages
% from 2011. >> doctors are getting worried as the obama administration ramps up enrollment in state exchange. the government's new medical insurance plans will force physicians to take a hard look at whether they can afford to practice at the same prices. >> if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor so long as your doctor keeps you. >> the new health plan has physicians wondering if they will be able to keep their so sf insured patients. >> i think the first thing that thphysicians can expect is a lot more patients with health insurance and a lot more will be covered through medicade because it's the biggest part of the insurance expanse i expansion ie affordable care act. >> many physicians restrict the number of patients that they accept because of the low reimbursements rates. >> medicade rates vary from state to state but are typically far below medicare and private insurance. >> look to the right. >> for instance. a brooklyn based opthamologist says that private insurance for a full eye exam will reimburse rates up to $150. medicare pays him $145 but for the same proced
because the obama administration, with a flood of subsidies, caused the colleges to raise tuitions to capture the subsidies. and now they are coming out with this debt and they are greeted by the obama congratulations, you have got a degree buy some insurance that you don't want at a price you can't afford. it's just not promising. charles? >> look, as for harry reid, i can't believe it's a coordinated campaign. it's too insane. i think it's harry reid wearing, trying on a tin hat. and i would just say, harry, give it up. you can argue all you want but the sunrises in the west. it's not going to work. and you you get this speaking against the: receive cancellations. they know they lost their insurance. there is no way to talk around it the other thing that the obama administration the white house is pushing is the success of the exchanges because they got 30,000 people supposedly enrolled. let's assume it's enrolled. they aren't enrolled. >> no ones that paid premiums? >> exactly. shopping and semienrolled. aspirationally enrolled let's put it that way. in two days. you do the math

an estimated bill and then we'll fact check and see. the obama administration will fact check and see and make sure that what they've estimated is the true cost. >> i just don't understand this, bob. an estimated bill based on what? something like 1/3 of the people signing up here have not really signed up because there's no payment mechanisms. we're going to have guest estimates and the government is going to give the insurance company the money and the insurance company is going to hand over the subsidies to people who didn't sign up officially. this is a little "alice in wonderland" for me. >> you know how screwed up healthcare.gov was? well, they didn't fix the back end. it's so screwed up that the federal government, the obama administration, can't pay the insurance companies their share of the subsidy premium. people get subsidies to help buy insurance and the federal government provides those. the administration hasn't built that part of the administration yet. here we are, it's almost january 1. the back -- almost none of the back part of the system works. they still can't transfer the
restrictions on ecigarettes as regular cigarettes. >>> the obama administration says the new and improved healthcare.gov website is working. it's now time for americans to enroll in a health insurance plan. but the group the white house most wants to sign up is the hardest sell. the white house needs millions of healthy young adults to sign up to make coverage affordable for everyone else. a new harvard university poll shows just 20% of americans under 30 plan to enroll in a healthcare plan as part of the affordable care act. >> i would rather pay the fine. i don't know how much health insurance is but i know it's more than that. >> the white house is hoping 7 million americans will sign up by april. >>> millions have visited the affordable care act website to review options. some people say they will take their chances without it. a new gallup poll indicates that more than 25% of people say they are more likely to pay the government fine for refusing coverage than sign up for mandatory insurance. that's 28% of 48 million people in the country uninsured. >>> 6:09. define the odds. the nor
none of the allegations against ford have been proven. >>> the obama administration says the new improved healthcare.gov website is working and is now time for americans to purchase health insurance but as susan mcginnis reports, the group the white house most wants to sign up may be the hardest sell. >>> reporter: the obama administration says 29,000 americans enrolled on healthcare.gov in the first two days after it was fixed. that includes dawn from texas. she is a self-employed musician who is buying health insurance for the first time in 20 years. >> i was very surprised at the prices actually. we entered all my tax info and income and stuff and i was pleasantly surprised. >> reporter: erin is in her 40s and has health problems but for the new law to work the white house needs millions of healthy young people to sign up to make coverage more affordable for everyone else. the president made his pitch during a white house youth summit wednesday. >> i hope you haven't been discouraged by how hard it's been because stuff that's worth it's always hard. >> reporter: a new harvard
and reduction of a trade agreement. russia urging stability and order, while the obama administration is not getting involved at all. apparently because of fears provoking a fracture with vladimir putin. vice president joe biden making no direct comments after meeting with the chinese leaders in beijing over the air zone dispute in the south china sea. the vice president called for trust calls for an operation. here we have the administration's response with what is continued rising sanctions. we have vice chief of staff, military analyst general jack keane. >> thank you for having me as beyond the platitudes falling from the vice president lives are hardly reassuring. and the chinese seem to be raising at least the bellicosity of their position. is there a clear path that we should be following here to avoid conflict? at the same time, maintain and defend our allies in the region? >> absolutely. the fact of the matter is that we know what this is. this is the power play to influence in the pacific by the chinese. they are going to find things like shipping rates and fishing rights a
's not asking too much for the obama administration just to come out and simply say, look, we're with japan, we're with south korea, this is not your territory, we're going to continue with the status quo. jenna: but if we both continue to disagree with each other, does it just -- the status quo remain? right now a thousand commercial flights go through that area every day including, of course, united states airlines, and the commercial airlines have been notifying china of going through this area because be they don't -- if they don't, i mean, this is a risk, very hypothetical, if they're viewed to be aggressive, then china could take action. >> sure. the problem here though, jenna, is both japan and south korea have told their airlines not to recognize this. so we are the ones who are giving in to the chinese, and we have a history of doing that. and that's the larger concern, is not just this situation here, but what does it say to israel and to others? i think what china's doing is they're looking at president obama's national security policies in egypt and in syria with and now in iran and

. the obama administration says 29,000 americans enrolled on healthcare.gov in the first two days after it was fixed. that includes dawn aaron from texas. she's a self-employed musician who's buying health insurance for the first time in 20 years. >> i was very surprised at the prices actually. we entered all my tax info and income and stuff, and i was pleasantly surprised. >> reporter: erin is in her 40s and has health issues but for the new law to work, the white house needs millions of healthy young people to sign up to make coverage moreffordable for everyone else. the president made his pitch during a white house youth summit wednesday. >> i hope you haven't been discouraged by how hard it's been because stuff that's worth it is always hard. >> reporter: a new harvard university poll shows just 20% of americans under age 30 plan to enroll in a health care plan as part of the affordable care act. nearly half say they're unlikely to sign up. >> i would rather do the finer things, obviously. i don't know how much health insurance is but i know it's a lot more than that. >> reporter: t
for your analysis. >> the obama administration now patting itself on the back for improvements to the health care website. it doesn't seem like that much but senate majority leader harry reid seems pleased. i'm not cocky but comfortable. i think we are in pretty good shape. so, susan, i don't know harry reid may be one of the few democrats right now who would use the word cocky to describe where the party is standing currently. your thoughts? >> there is a division. there are safer democrats who are willing to talk about the things that are going well. they have had a slight boost in enrollment. the website is working more smoothly and then you have the reality democrats, the ones who are getting the calls to their office about cancelled insurance policies. they are afraid of what is going to happen in 2014. if you look at the polls, there are democrats who might lose in 2014 because of this. joe mansion is having a town hall meeting today hearing complaints about uncertainty and their premiums are going up. ha harry reid is a former boxer and this is playing offense. it is say
. >> the argument they are making with the creepy uncle sam showed they still do it. it's by the obama administration to make you get something you don't need and you probably don't want. it's a crazy thing. the president is going after young people in particular. one because you need them in the pool. you need the premiums and helping people in the pools to help pay for all the older people who are much more expensive. this doesn't work if everyone is not in the pool. especially if young people aren't. >> that's the argument. they want the law to mail and they would start bankrupting insurance companies because they break the model. >> the insurance companies may be bankrupt even further. this is deeply cynical. the website works and let's go back to the argument. we are making in the first place. guess what happened if you don't get the young people. not like the exchanges go away. they become a lot more expensive. they won't wind up killing them, they will wound them and guess who will be stuck with the tab. the taxpayer. with the republicans and conservatives are doing is expanding
it? on a mass scale for years under the obama administration nothing happened. judge napolitano: illegal for the present to bomb libya and kill gaddafi. stuart: would be illegal? would you declare war? judge napolitano: everything -- stuart: formal declaration of war. judge napolitano: killing? yes. spying? no. you need a search warrant. you needed declaration of war. the nsa doesn't kill but the nsa spies. lawful search warrants, it gets general warrant, the general warrant like british soldiers had, the bearer may go where he wishes for whatever you wants but the fourth amendment requires everyone specifically describe a person to be seen as a place to be searched. general warrants are unconstitutional. even for as you call them -- stuart: when you agree that there is debate on the issue? if a general search warrant is unconstitutional or not? it is not cut and dried. you are not automatically right because you say. judge napolitano: not i who was saying that but the constitution saying it. stuart: your interpretation of the constitution. judge napolitano: the meaning of the w
hunltsman, the former ambassador to china he will served during the first two years of the obama administration. mr. ambassador, mr. governor, thank you. vice president's language specifically chosen, deeply concerned. is that strong enough? >> well, i think that's appropriate terminology. it was spoken in tokyo where coordinating a lot of what goes on in the region with our ally, japan, and also with korea to some extent is absolutely critical at this point. and the language used was appropriate given the circumstances. now it will all play out in beijing as he meets with the new leader of china who he got to know on a personal level when they were vice presidents together. she served as vice president before becoming president of china. so they have a preexisting relationship. it is actually quite unusual for the head of china to accord this amount of time to the vice president of the united states. so he's giving him a private dinner. he spent two hours with him in a by lateral meeting. all of that presumably is taking us in a direction that defines some parameters around the
are legislati options that would explicitly rip the obama administration's nuclear deal with iran. quote, a handful of house gop lawmakers tell the hill that the party is debating how best to show disapproval for the iran agreement struck shortly after congress left for the thanksgiving recess. this is the new plan. republicans are going to try to make president obama look terrible for negotiating that new agreement over iran's nuclear program and in the process of making him look terrible they, of course, will show the country that they, themselves, republicans are much better on the issue. they are much more trustworthy, much more sober, much more sane when it comes to dealing with complicated and sensitive issues like iran and nuclear weapons in the middle east. republicans want to show off how much americans should prefer their republican approach when it comes to iran. as part of that new political offensive, behold duncan hunter on c-span. >> i think a ground war in iran with american boots on the ground would be a horrible thing and i think people like to toss around the fact that
and serving as special adviser for health policy in the obama administration. krystal, it sounds like the website is working like a website. >> yeah. and that is a beautiful thing, both because it's time for us to move past the debates and the questions about glitches and into actually seeing this law work in action. i mean, i think the republicans are going to find themselves in a very perilous place where they have pinned all of their hopes and all of their messaging and all of their platform on hoping that this law fails. they grabbed on to the website and they grabbed on to the president wasn't very straight with you. but over time the law is going to work better and better and we are going to see success stories that we are increasingly seeing and republicans are going to be caught with their pants down and hanging on to this thing, but we really hate obama care, don't you hate it, too? >> zeek, the numbers are still a little vague. they can't tell us how many people have purchased health insurance, how many haven't. they can tell us how many people have made a selection off the
lawsuit just as the obama administration starts a three-week media blitz to re-market the affordable care act and encourage more people to sign up. >> reporter:.but ultimately, this will all be decided in court. the supreme court will decide whether private companies can refuse to offer certain insurance benefits -- but their ruling isn't expected until well into next year. >> reporter: cited such lawsuits -- as well as the botched roll-out of healthcare-dot-gov -- as evidence the affordable care act won't work. >>"this bill is fundamentally flawed, causing people to lose the doctor of their choice, causing them to lose their health plan. as if that isn't enough, they're having to pay much higher prices at the same time." >> reporter:.but president barack obama says some republicans just want to see his signature health care reform fail. >>"if you've got good ideas. bring 'em to me. let's go. but, we're not repealing it as long as i'm president." >> reporter:.and you can expect white house officials to keep touting the benefits of obamacare as republicans continue to pound the negatives o

with the young voters and their growing apparent disapproval of the bristol-mye obama administration and the president himself. do you think, those that a larger part of their disenchantment with this particular president has to do with the fact when they get out of college they won't be able to afford a cell phone because there will be no job for them, because the economic landscape is so bleak for them? >> sure. i totally think that. that's very accurate. you know the thing is one time where the white house was doing well politically this past year was during the government shutdown. it's a weird way to say you're doing well when the entire government stops. i think young voters and i don't speak for young voters obviously, happen to be the youngest on this panel but young voters have been through a lot in the past four years with respect to the economy and job prospects and student debt which is a huge issue and they look at the landscape and say who has anything to offer -- what are people offering me. they look at obama and say you haven't done a great job. but then they look at

. a senior administration official in the current obama administration told us last week, he said i've been incredibly impressed by the judgment and care that you would expect from a great news organization. and, finally, a senior whitehall official at the heart of these stories on september 9, i have not seen anything you have published to date which is risked lives. so there are different views about this and i listened with respect to the give you have given, but i don't -- >> but you disagree with an? >> it's not that i disagree. it's impossible to assess because no one is give me specific evidence. >> the real criticism is that the information you contains the names of individual sector the officers and this has been sent around the world, sometimes pay for by "the guardian," and these names are of our security officers, people who were there to protect our country. that's what you damaged the country, because others who don't have security clearance have been able to read these names, know who they are, possibly know where they live. that is the damage that they allege you have done.

pleased with the kind of response he's been getting from the obama administration about security. and depending on where you look, congressman, you know, people on the right to some extent say there was never even any thought to getting security in there. and people on the left say, you know, when i had a kid, should i have gotten rid of my kid when i saw a few glitches? no, you fix the glitches. it's a wide spectrum. what wept into the planning for security? >> well, unfortunately, not much. this isn't about wanting the site to fail itself. you're pushing people. people have lost their health care. they need to be able to access this site in order to get on and get a policy by january. so that's our concern. and what you've done is you've opened them up to a level of risk using this website i've never seen. standard site of this size would be about 500,000 lines of code, roughly, maybe a little less. the code in healthcare.gov is about 5 million lines of code. and it has never been thoroughly tested. and so we know of a very low level access problem and meaning that somebody cou
, even though the obama administration had talked about how much al-qaeda had been dismantled since the death of bin lad en, do americans need to worry now that al-qaeda does seem to be gaining ground in the middle east? >> i think the americans ought to be very concerned about the increasing capability. while the u.s. government has started to parse their words, saying we only met core al-qaeda in pakistan and afghanistan, the fact is that the franchisees, the smaller groups of al-qaeda represent a clear and present danger not only to the countries and governments in the middle east but also that of the united states. >> general, thank you. >> commuter trains will roll again today on a normal schedule past the reopened stop in the bronx, the scene of sunday's fatal derailment in new york city. the train to derailed featured a system that can warn the engineer of a potential accident and apply the brakes, but the system was not in the front cab where william rockefeller was at the controls. it was installed in the locomotive, which was pushing the train from the back. >> highly radi
. there was a conference call with the obama care team and reporters a few hours ago. the hot issue, not how the website was working but how many people are getting the coverage they think they have signed up for. today the administration was pressed on thisful there was a key moment in the call when a reporter tried to get a federal agency to come clean on how many errors they are. the errors are leading to misinformation going to the insurance companies not knowing the identity of many of those who think they have signed up, but, in fact, haven't signed up. the forms are called 834s. listen. >> as the work continues, as we validate numbers and transactions with them, value day to day the assessment of the fixes that have been put in place, we'll definitely report back to you on that progress. and on the numbers over time. >> i plan to report on progress as we have the information. >> right. but i'm asking specifically about errors in the 834s. will you give us a metric measure of how many 834s the errors are affecting? >> it's the same information, sara. as soon as i can validate numbers we'll report
if people are talking about you? >> it's not obama care so the administration does this and he's looking very press deshlg. he's meeting with the premiere of china, big deal for him. >> this is, i think, one of the most talked about stories that i've heard in a long time. so jeff bezos goes on 60 minutes and he has these drones and they'll drop packages with a new pair of shoes on the front doorstep and what's your social media reaction? >> it's very negative. three to one against. >> why? >> we did what we call symantec analysis. the word drone is not a positive connotation for two reasons. number one, the militaristic uses of the drone and number two, it feels very big brother and it feels a little forced, the night before cyber monday and the night before he's out talking about this and a lot of people felt like, well, he's pushing this, but we're not going to see it and it was a little creepy for some people. >> well, did you see this picture on twitter? i think it's been retweeted thousands of times. it's a mock attempted delivery slip. they checked off, drone resurgence and against
his speech on obama care. who were they and why won't the administration tell us? they are now saying we don't get to know. that's unusual. we'll have more on it when we come back. ♪ who are you. ♪ who are you. >> i real hi honey, did you get e toaster cozy? yep. got all the cozies. [ grandma ] with n fedex one rate, i could ll a box and ship it r one flat rate. so i kn untilt was full. you'd be crazy not to. is tt nana?

down. >> there you go. i can see how that would relate. let's get to obama care and the new numbers released. 29,000 people enrolled through the website in the last few days. that's more than the entire month of october and what some administration officials are saying an enrollment surge. should they be celebrating just yet? >> no. there are so many issues remaining with obama care, they just got past the first one which apparently is the mess up with the website. but to compare it to october is not really much of a comparison. you know, it was nil in october. >> and so what are some of the other challenges that they're going to have to confront? >> they have to go with the doctors who are not getting paid, not being included in networks. you have to solve the problems with irs and coordinatation with the various agencies. how are people going to be paid? there's all kinds of problems that have to be worked out. >> a little too early to celebrate. now when it comes to obama care, republicans clearly have the political advantage for a while. but now that white house seems to be gett
and for the rest of my presidency, that's where you should expect my administration to focus all our efforts. >> president obama said he wants america to be a magnet for a good middle class and good middle class jobs in manufacturing, infrastructure and energy. and made a vocal push for an increase in the minimum wage. but for those who work hard and play by the rules, is the american dream still achievable or have the rules changed to benefit the few at the expense of many? thank you both for joining us. congressman, you know all about what's going on in the house of representatives. it's run by republicans, and the republicans are run by their hard right. how do you get through a big bill. but the fact of the matter is much of this can begin in the senate. and i really believe if we can get the senate to act on some of this, much of it, it will force the house to really react. they are not going to originate any of this stuff. and i'm very pleased the president has now laid down a foundation that hopefully we will begin to build upon. a foundation that tells us that this is not just about
